My American story started when I began motherhood. I never imagine being a single mom would produce two beautiful, brilliant, educated, hardworking young ladies. The dichotomy of parenting was a reflection of planning, impromptu, fearful, fearless, laughter, tears, forgiveness, forgetfulness, yays, nays, resentment, redemption but mostly God, Prayer, Hope, Faith and Love. Children are a blessing not a burden. "While we try to teach our children about life, our children teach us what life is all about."
